Kudos to COLUMBIA NASHVILLE VP/Promotion NORBERT NIX, who completed the IRONMAN 70.3 EAGLEMAN in CAMBRIDGE, MD on SUNDAY (6/14). If there was ever a doubt about NIX's level of badassery, it can be noted that completing this course required him to complete a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride, and 13.1-mile -- or half-marathon length -- run in consecutive order.
"It was 92 degrees and 97 heat index. The swim was against a tide coming in with chop. Hammered the bike at 21+ mph, but got off the bike and started walking within the first two miles," explained NIX. "I didn't think I would finish for a few minutes. Then I thought that I tell my kids, 'Never give up!' ... so there was no option. Got one hell of a tan, though!" Congratulate NIX on the accomplishment here.
